Descriere RO

For the last 14 years, Lisa and Simon Thomas have been living on the road, traveling the world, camping, and cooking and sharing with new friends. Their supplies come from local markets and what they can carry in Lisa's kitchen, which is one of the aluminum motorcycle panniers on her BMW adventure touring motorcycle.

Sometimes fresh food is plentiful, other times it's scarce. There's fresh fish in Senegal, fresh veggies in Uzbekistan, and more beef than you can eat in Argentina. But they've traversed the Altiplano at 15,000, the Sahara Desert at 112 degrees, and struggled through sodden tundra fighting elephant sized mosquitos. They've been broke and exhausted in areas where the only "fresh" food is shriveled potatoes and onions, trying to work out what to eat. Most of the time this means getting creative with that tin of tuna, the packet of curry paste, and other basic items that Lisa has tucked away, "just in case."

In all these years of traveling Lisa has figured out how to pep up an often monotonous diet with variations like marinades, sauces, and roasted vegetables you can get almost anywhere. She counts on her stock of staples, and particular herbs, sauces, and spices. You'll find out what utensils and cooking equipment you need to pack--she's honed them down to the bare necessities by now. The right knife, cutting board, vegetable peeler, stove, saucepans, skewers, and other tools can make all the difference in a long day of traveling.

Each recipe comes with clear instructions, exact measurements, and plenty of ideas for substitutions. Tinned and dried food come in handy when you're traveling off the beaten track, and Lisa shows you how to make do when there is nothing much around to eat.

Whether you're on an extended, round-the-world journey or just heading off on a short adventure, you need to stay healthy, too. This book not only shares lessons Lisa has learned from her time traveling the world but from her background as a health and fitness professional--the life she left 14 years ago and has continually drawn upon to keep herself and Simon heathy all these years. She shows you how, with just a small selection of basic foodstuffs, it is possible to produce quick, tasty and nutritious meals.

From comfort food and exotic dishes to sweet and gooey guilty desserts, adventurers and armchair travelers alike will appreciate each recipe's simplicity and ease of preparation, along with the photographs and the tales of adventure that accompanies each one. Make your journey taste better by learning the secrets of Lisa's kitchen and enjoy inspiring stories and lush photography from around the world, too.
